Although I'm a big fan of the Joel Grey/Lisa M. movie performance of this story, I felt this production was excellent. The set, costumes, music,dancing, singing and acting were excellent. The female who did the Joel Grey part as well as the the...continued

It was a delightful evening out. The set design, costuming and lights were great. The direction had many strengths and the cast was very good. One might worry a little about the ability of the lead singers to maintain their voices for the...continued

Based on the reviews, we were expecting more than my wife and I experienced. The orchestra, set, costumes, lighting, choreography, and direction were very good. The acting was decent for the most part, but the singing was not impressive....continued

Performances were extended to May 22, and I attended the last performance. So glad that I did-in a word: fantastic!

We thoroughly enjoyed the production. We thought that the Emcee, the landlady and Mr. Schultz were the strongest characters. Their acting was notable and carried the show. Sally was pretty good although as the show progressed, her voice lost...continued

This is an amazing experience that is so well presented and takes you over so completely as it proceeds, that I would recommend it to all.

I really enjoyed this play and would have given it 4 stars, the hesitation being a few vocal solos which didn't quite hit the mark. The female emcee was excellent, I preferred her to Joel Grey. Sally didn't quiite work for me and the first act...continued

This was one of the best performances of Cabaret that I have ever seen! We loved the entire production and the performers were superb. The Old Town Theater is a perfect venue for this show...it has the right kind of intimacy. Once again, Cygnet...continued

You have to go into this show knowing it is what it is- about a Cabaret. It was great, from the set to the singing to the acting to the storyline. I would go and see it again.

Our party of six thoroughly enjoyed the show. Costumes, lighting, everything was wonderful. My personal favorites were the Emcee and "Helga" What a riot. The orchestra might tone down the volume a bit - it was really hard to hear the lyrics. ...continued

Excellent staging and production. Orchestra right on, but could have been turned down a notch - make it easier on the song delivery. Coming to the end of the run, voices are a little tired and can use some help. Needs a pause and reflection at...continued

Cygnet is successful in making the best of the limitations of the facility. Could have had better handle on the sound reinforcement, but overall, a great show!
